  • I think it is a must visit for all middle school and high school students of France. This traces a part of our history and must be known by all young people to educate them on what is war and confront them with the duty to remember and make sure they never live this.

  • A very nice Museum located in the vicinity of meaux. Museum very exciting, he plunges us into the painful past of the gueurre, thanks to media photos, movies... Very interesting, and moving. Possibility of guided tour. A visit to family or solo. A tribute to the past.

  • This museum although it is on the outskirts of Paris, deserves a lot worth visiting it. The building is beautiful in the middle of the field, which in its day was battlefield. All your mount is perfect to understand (if is that you can) a horrible and painful war to Europe with millions of victims. Visit highly emotional. Essential.

  • Superb introduction to World War 1. Starting in 1870, this museum does a wonderful job of introducing people to the background and effects of the war; both at home and at the fronts.
  • Visited the end of May 2015. Wonderful museum with a fabulous collection of items. Particularly enjoyed the items relating to everyday life in the trenches. The layout in the open space was well thought out and moved visitors easily through the exhibits. Glad I made the trip to Meaux!
  • Absolutely fascinating display with a wide range of knowledge and exhibits.
  • Museum exciting, skimpy and including the course, tremendously well illustrated and modern, can easily grasp the various aspects of the great war. Allow at least half a day for good enriched places! In addition, tariff-26 years is very accessible in comparison including D-day Normandy museums. Furthermore, the visit is marked by photos taken of current conflicts so allowing a judicious parallel between the context of the great war and current geopolitics.
